The detection and restoration of intensity flicker is a common artifact in the restoration of archived film. Considering the interrelation between the successive frames in the image sequences, a novel approach based on motion compensation is proposed. Three steps search algorithm is introduced to estimate motion vectors, which can detect motion regions more accurately. Besides, threshold method is used to detect flickers, avoid non-flicker regions being corrected,and the efficiency has been improved with shor…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
